could see ts way clear to g^ UP: Premier and Minister of Lands Re-

deeply disappointed, as it has   been admitted that  the   Government already

the size of the audience which
greeted him was an evidence of
the love and respect for him.
It is one thing to hear about a
place and quite another to see it
for yourself. The premier can
bow realize the urgency of certain public improvements. He
took a lot of notes about what
he was told and jotted down on
his "card system" many notes
from his own observations. Mr.
Oliver was the picture of health
and as was to be expected preferred to walk when he inspected the long wharf approach.
Tangible evidences of his personal observations are expected
